Over 100 students from a government-aided school in Kasese District face disruption following a devastating hail storm that damaged their learning institution ahead of third term which begins today.
The hailstorm left over 100 iron sheets blown off classrooms at Kabirizi Primary School, casting doubt on whether the school will fully open on Monday.
The school head teacher Wilson Baluku told our reporter that three classrooms totally lost their iron sheets while another one was partially affected.
He highlighted the urgency of addressing the issue, estimating that the school would need at least Shs7.5 million to repair the damaged classroom block.
Semu Bangahi, the chairperson of the school management committee, stated that all efforts were being made to ensure the school’s reopening, as they sought solutions to the challenges posed by the disaster.
George Mainja, the Kasese District Education Officer, recommended that the school management convene an emergency meeting involving all stakeholders to address the disaster’s aftermath.
